Khalida is one of the bravest women I know. We talk about her courage and determination to speak out for women, to speak out for change in Afghanistan, even when her life was threatened.

As a girl Khalida played football with her brothers. When she became a teenager this had to stop. Instead, she set up a school team and went on to become captain of Afghanistan women’s national team. She now lives in Denmark with her family after receiving death threats.

Khalida recently led the investigation into the president of the Afghanistan Football Association, Keramuudin Karim, sexually assaulting women in the team. Karim is now banned from all sports for life and the case sparked the MeToo movement in Afghanistan.

Khalida is a powerful, bold voice for women and women’s rights who will inspire you to use your visibility and voice to fulfil your true purpose.

What they say

“The greatest gift from True Business has been simplicity. It has allowed my offerings to emerge and they are all things I never thought I’d be able to do as work. Photography and taking people into Nature feel so obvious as they are part of me. The business I needed to bring to the world has now been allowed to emerge.”

Edward Pike, Spiritual Mentor, Photographer & Writer

“My PR plan became the creative, energetic heart of my project. What emerged was surprising, energising, and far larger than I expected. This has given me the courage to do effortlessly what I previously believed would be challenging. I cannot recommend Kat more highly. She is world-class.”

Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma

“’It is enjoyable to make things visible, which are invisible’ – Eric Cantona. This quote speaks volumes about you Kat. You are an inspiration now and always.”

Dave Cobban, Director, Nike Sustainable Business and Innovation

“Working with Kat burst through over 2 years of frustration and perspiration in about an hour and a half! From then I had a clear vision of what we needed to articulate and set to work.”

Martin Saunders, Marketing Head, Good Energy

“Kat brings out courage due to her own sense of bravery in allowing creativity to be used as a powerful force for positive change.”

Noelle Adcock-Mcelya
